The Cause of Iran’s Next Boycotted Elections

Calls for Boycott Amplifies as Khamenei Tries To Consolidate His Regime.

While Iran’s fraudulent presidential election won’t take place until 18 June, it’s widely assumed that the current judiciary chief, Ebrahim Raisi, will be the fundamentalists’ next president. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that Raisi was one of just seven candidates allowed to run for election by the regime’s Guardian Council in May, out of roughly 600 who had initially registered.

The other six are relatively insignificant figures. Their appointment was made to give the illusion of choice in a procedure that was really just meant to install the supreme leader’s choice as the country’s second-highest official.

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): The other six are relatively insignificant figures. Their appointment was made to give the illusion of choice.

Ali Khamenei’s stated preference for a future Raisi administration is part of his overall strategy to consolidate power inside his regime. Raisi assumed control of the judiciary in 2019 to allow Khamenei to carry out his repressive policies against Iran’s dissident society.

Khamenei personally selected him to the role, putting him in the position of potentially replacing any of the six judges on the Guardian Council, as well as six clerics nominated by Khamenei.

(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): Ebrahim Raisi, for those with memories of his role in the past, is hardly the defender of human rights. He was deeply involved in the massacre in 1988, the majority of them were members or supporters of the (PMOI / MEK Iran).

Even though Rouhani embraced some of the Western policy tendencies, as a possible harbinger of serious reform, the Iranian Resistance has long maintained that no such reforms exist in the regime because the theocratic system strictly forbids them, and Rouhani, as one of the regime’s top officials involved in 40 years of oppression, was not a reformist.

Because the dictatorship has banned any candidate who has really called for reform from running.

Massacre of Iranian Political Prisoners
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Iranian officials brazenly claim Khomeini’s fatwa still stands against The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), dissidents.

There was a dramatic increase in public awareness of Raisi’s role in the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in the month leading up to his initial presidential run, and it became evident that Khamenei’s approval of him was an invitation for regime authorities to place a greater emphasis on violent repression.

Ruhollah Khomeini, the regime’s founder, issued a fatwa in 1988 pronouncing enemies of the theocratic system, particularly members and supporters of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), guilty of “enmity against God” and hence subject to public execution.

UN Pushes Iranian Regime
(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): The UN experts expressed: “We are concerned that the situation may amount to crimes against humanity.” They stated that if Iran continues “to refuse to uphold its obligations”.

As a result, officials across the country formed “death commissions” and entrusted them with questioning political prisoners about their political ideas and affiliations in order to evaluate who really cared about Iran’s future as a democratic nation. 30,000 people were executed in a few months, and Raisi, as a contributor to Tehran’s main death commission, was responsible for many, if not all, of them.

The Iranian people have grown tired of supporting the lesser of two alternatives only to have “reformist” leaders affirm that their faction is misnamed and is implicated in crimes against humanity and terrorism.

Maryam Rajavi, the President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has welcomed the adoption of a 66th resolution censuring the flagrant and systematic human rights violations in Iran by the United Nations General Assembly.
(PMOI / MEK Iran) and (NCRI): Mrs. Maryam Rajavi said: “Their impunity must end. The [United Nations] Security Council must recognize the regime’s crimes, including the 1988 and the 2019 massacres, as crimes against humanity so that those responsible are brought to justice.”
This sentiment was expressed widely in November 2019, when a nationwide movement took place in response to the regime’s violent repression, some of which was spearheaded by Raisi. Ultimately, the clerical regime’s widespread rejection found a new outlet in February 2020, when the regime’s lowest voter participation in its history was recorded during parliamentary elections.

Even the dictatorship’s state media is now warning that a boycott of the regime’s sham presidential election is bound to happen, as the Resistance activists are actively encouraging every day.

(NCRI) and (PMOI / MEK Iran): Activities of Resistance Units and Mujahedin-e Khalq supporters.
